Acting President of The Stout Institute 


The statement of our first president may 
well be carried in this and further publica- 


"The Stout Institute stands for high ideals, 
for high attainment and ever higher attain- 
ment in mental growth through the acquisi- 
tion and use of worth while knowledge, in 
skill of hand, in teaching ability, in sense of 
personal responsibility, in respect for rights 
of others, in will and power to render worthy 



B. A. Ph.D. 



Fifty-four years before the beginning of Stout Institute, was born Lorenzo 
Dow Harvey, destined by the keenness of his mentality, the force of his char- 
acter, the charm of his personality, to become one of the great educational leaders 
of the United States. 

Into every task, he put his best effort, whole-heartedly, enthusiastically, 
and success followed. From rural school to city school teacher, then city super- 
intendent, normal school instructor, normal school president. CO state superin- 
tendent of public instruction, his path led in less than thirty years. 

Following this, in 1903. Senator J. H. Stout of Menomonie. Wisconsin, 
looking about for the man best qualified to develop an experiment in the train- 
ing of teachers of domestic economy and manual training, secured the services 
of Dr. Harvey, as superintendent of the Menomonie public schools and the 
Stout Manual Training School. To this new field of work. Dr. Harvey 
brought this background of successful school experience, and the exceptional 
power of organization, broad vision, practical judgment which marked all his 
work. From the beginning, the school won for itself and its leader a nation- 
wide reputation, for it was based on sound educational theory and practice. 

In 1908. the Stout Training School separated from the city schools, and 
was incorporated as Stout Institute, with Dr. Harvey as the president. After 
Mr. Stouts death, in 1911. the school became a state institution, governed by 
the state board of vocational education. 

In 1913. President Harvey s efforts were rewarded by the legislative appro- 
priation of $265,000. which was used for the erection and equipment of the 
trades and household arts buildings. 

Five years later. Dr. Harvey, always ambitious for the school, directed 
his energies to furthering the passage of a legislative bill which granted the right 
to offer four year courses in industrial and household arts, and to confer the 
B. S. degree. 

President Harvey, for four years thereafter, saw the school continue its 
growth and maintain its accepted place in the American Association of Teachers 
Colleges, and then, working to the last, the year's work completed, he died 
rune 1. 1922. 

By those who know Stout Institute, it will always be thought of as Dr. 
Harvev's school, for it is. indeed, his. in the sense that it represents his educa- 
tional ideas and ideals: that it is the embodiment of his dominating personality. 
It is his masterpiece. 

Hundreds of men and women, former students of Dr. Harvey's, think 
with appreciative gratitude of his influence in their lives. For them all he had 
a kindly interest and affectionate regard. 

Associates of Dr. Harvey gained immeasurably from his sympathetic under- 
standing of their problems and difficulties, his generous encouragement, his 
genial, but stimulating friendship, his insight into and keen analysis of all situa- 
tions, his profound knowledge, his broad culture. To have known him. is to 
be the richer for the experience: to have had the privilege of close association 
with him. means a broader outlook upon life and a permanent inspiration.

Coiled through the hollows with its silvered loops 
Down to the waiting river."

Junior Senior Class

HELEN KUNTZ ----- Librarian 

As another year draws to a close we find in the Junior-Senior Class the 
group of students who have agreed to these words of Whittier's: 

Then sound again the bugles. 

Call the muster roll anew, 

If months have well nigh won the held. 

What may not four years do. 

They have felt that the call to higher education would better fit them for 
service to others. The class consisting of seventy members which because of 
its great increase over the membership of previous years is enabled to stand out 
by itself and show more spirit and leadership. 

The majority of the class are Juniors who will be back to carry on their 
work here next year. Some of our members, will, however, be stationed in 
various places, and because of their high standards of work, cooperation and 
loyalty, we are sure of their success.

Sophomore Class of 1923 

RUEBEN LEININGER .... President 

EDITH .BESTE - Vice-President 

ROY DAM BERG - - - Secretary-Treasurer 

The class of 1923 entered Stout the fall of 1921 with ideals that any 
class would feel proud of. We did not stop there, but continued throughout 
the year raising the standards of practically all the courses in Stout Institute. 

The Freshman -Sophomore games brought out a large amount of Class 
spirit that prevailed throughout the war. In the Tug-of-War our class received 
the name of brave losers, but in the Basketball Game the tables were turned and 
we won a hard fought game 1 9 to 1 7. Our inter-class competitors as Freshman 
ended with the loss of the Freshman-Sophomore Baseball game. 

In the fall of '22 the whole class returned to Stout to renew its efforts. 

The Tug-of-War ended with us on the dry end and one point lost our 
Basketball game. We are looking forward to a class track meet or baseball 

April 1 3 was set aside for the Sophomore Prom and it was a pretty and 
successful party. 

The standards of our school are high, let us keep them there.

F is for the "friendliness" that we have for all. 

W'hv even many Senior men have called at Lynwood Hall! i 

R is for the "rules" we keep so faithfully each day. 

We keep them, all the big and small, and never go astray. 

E is for the "education" we had before we came. 

Were trying now to get some more to learn the teaching game. 

S is for the "seriousness" we put into our work. 

We're at it every day and night and never do we shirk. 

H is for the "haughtiness" you know we haven't got. 

We believe in real democracy: aristocracy, we have not. 

M is for our "manners": we've had them all the time. 

But even so we've learned some more in assembly from Miss Klein. 

E is for "each" one of us: we're one for all and all for one. 
It takes a willing class like us to manufacture fun. 

N is for our "number." we arc a mighty crowd.

Now name them all. and you have a class that's royal and true.

R. K. O. 

Shortly after the opening of the regular session in the fall of 1920 a num- 
ber of upper-classmen of the Industrial Arts Department began to discuss the 
advisability of organizing a club which should have for its purpose the develop- 
ment of school spirit, and the promotion of higher standards of school work, 
and at the same time be a means of providing some degree of entertainment and 
diversion for its members. The first meeting was held on October twenty-fifth, 
at which time the plans and policies for a permanent organization were adopted 
and referred to the faculty of the school for approval. 

During its short existence the R. K. O. Club has risen to a position of 
recognized prominence among the organizations of The Stout Institute. The 
Club docs not limit its work to any particular field, but heartily endorses and 
assists in the promotion of any and all activities that tend toward the best 
interests of the school. Among the members of the R. K. O. are listed many 
men who arc leaders in scholarship, in athletics, and in numerous other school 

The roster of the club includes many men who are now holding teaching 
positions of importance throughout the country. The active membership for 
1922-1923 follows:

The Menomin Club 

Organized 1922 

HI our ambition is. we own 
To profit and to please, unknown." 

The Menomin Club is an organization consisting of thirty -five picked men 
from the "Industrial Arts Department" and every man has been chosen for 
his merits in scholarship and athletics. Our aim. eventually, is to establish a 
standard in both scholarship and athletics that will appeal to the "Student 
Body" and the members of the "Faculty" as a real worthwhile membership 
and a realization that these standards are set forth for the betterment of all 
activities connected with school life.

The original Mcnomin Club, which was also known as the P. D. A. Club. 
was reorganized in November. 1922. and as a result of the reorganization there 
are now two clubs — The Menomin Club and the P. D. A. Club. The letters

The Philomathean Literary Society 

The Philomathean Literary Society is an organization of thirty Stout 
girls whose aim is expressed by the name ■"Philomathean." which means 
"A love for higher learning." Thus our pin bears the standard Philomathean 

As in other Philomathean societies our organization stands for what is 
best in scholarship and good fellowship and our members are chosen on that 
score. When new members are to be elected, each Philo member may ask 
one fellow student if she desires to join the society. If the candidate so desires, 
she then writes to the secretary, expressing her wish to become a member. The 
number to be elected is then chosen by the society from this group of candi- 
dates. There follows an initiation which is never forgotton by those under- 
going it. 

The year of 1922-23 has been a very successful one in the society. At 
the beginning of the year it was voted that we continue the study of art as 
our main subject for this year and that we follow up the study of artists and 
their pictures by a trip to the cities to visit the Minneapolis Art Museum and 
the Walker Gallery. It has been planned that this trip be made by all mem- 
bers of the society, if possible, on the seventh of April, our main object being 
to see and enjoy some of the original paintings of the artists we have studied 
this year, while we are so near these two rare art galleries. 

At our meetings on the first and third Tuesdays of each month, we have 
had programs in which the lives and works of famous artists have been dis- 
cussed and prints of their paintings studied. We have thus become acquainted 
with such masters as Gainsborough. Turner. Sir Thomas Lawrence. Hans 
Holbein, and Jules Breton. We are indebted to Miss Messer and her mother 
for the use of their library and many excellent prints which we would other- 
wise have been unable to obtain. Miss Messer's talks to us on the study of 
art have also added much to our enjoyment and appreciation of the subject. 

To Miss Skinner, our faculty advisor, we wish to express our gratitude 
for the ever ready help and inspiration she has given us throughout the year. 

But what would Philo be without the tea cups! Our programs are 
always followed by a social half hour that we would be loathe to do without. 
They will always linger in our minds as pleasant memories.

develop a spirit of good fellowship, and to bring together the students from 
the different parts of our state. It is hoped that the Hawkeye Club will con- 
tinue to grow in the coming years.

Tainter Annex 

We will admit there may be nicer dormitories than Bertha Tainter 
Annex, but we have never heard of them. 

We came from every part of the country to live the year 1922 and 1923 
under one roof, and to learn from each other, one of the best things in life, 
that of living with a large number of people whose rights must be considered, 
and from this experience to make our own lives better. 

Now. we have every type of girl here, the peppy ones, of whom we 
appoint Mary Olson as leader. Then there is another group of very studious 
girls who set an example for the rest of us: and Minnie Marks and Ruth Field 
would no doubt be leaders. We cannot leave out our bobbed haired girls: 
there are Pauline. Fannie. Mildred. Delores. Billie Sis. Mary, and Clara. Nor 
can we fail to mention our clown. Doris Cox. 

Sometimes we are accused of being "stuck up*' because we do not have 
many intimate friends among the other girls. The reasons for this being we 
have so many girls from whom to choose friends here, we never go anv 

When we are old and gray and think back upon the many happy davs 
spent in the Annex, we will not forget the arrival of the mail when we all 
hang over the balconies while someone calls. "Mail, everybody out." Nor will 
we forget the birthdays celebrated in our rooms with study tables pushed 
together to make our banquet board and all the odds and ends of silver and 
dishes collected for the occasion. 

We have rules — yes. many of them. Perhaps a bit more strict than 
others, but little things, like not being in parades, lose their sting when we 
look back on them. 

This year a house organization was started, with a Sophomore girl from 
each floor as chairman. These girls take charge of any activities which take 
place as. for instance, the Christmas party. How can we ever forget that 
party.' With Mary Olson as Santa Claus and the freshmen with their stunts 
and the party ending with hymns, it was perfect. 

We want to say that in anything in which the freshmen have been asked 
to take part, they have done their part and have shown their good sportsman- 
ship both in work and play. 

Miss Leedom. as our matron, has quite a large family to look after. 
She is a very good nurse and can take a temperature as good as any profess ; onal. 
With her Ford coupe she can spin around and have her pleasures, but she never 
neglects her family. When there is trouble, no one is more eager to help 
than she. 

When the Sophomores leave this year, it will be with a feeling that we 
have spent one of the most enjoyable years in the Annex. We hope that from 
year to vear the ideals and the standards which have been passed down to us 
will be carried on to each succeeding class and that they will be better and 
finer women for having felt this influence.

Tainter Hall 

Dear Lena. 

I must tell you about that elegant new place vot I got. It bane at that 
big house at the end of Broadway, where you see so many of those girls in 
stripes go. They say there are only twenty-two here but I don't believe it. 
They call it Tainter Hall for some von vot is dead. I don't know if maybe 
he died laughing at those girls like I most do. or vot. 

Veil, der first morning vot I was here the head push, vot they call Maria. 
said. "Ring the bell, it's time for those girls to get up." I think dot very 
queer; but I do it. and I listen so hard but I don't hear anything. Then purty 
soon Maria says, Ring the bell, it's time for breakfast.'' My goodness I 
think that those girls must be fire horses: for. at the last bell, vot a commo- 
tions I heard upstairs and first von girl come down, and looked into the 
dining room, and yells. "French toast, hurrah!" I think that girl is era 
but soon there are more coming and they all act alike. 

Then at 8:15 I hear a awful noise in the hall. I asked vot it vas and 
the other maids said. "Oh. it's only the girls getting their mail." I listened 
and heard von say. "The only mail is for Phyllis. Nan Jean, and Persis as 
usual. It sure is lucky Dick and Helen get theirs at the post office or the rest 
of us would never be able to get any." 

It vas awful quiet den until twelve o'clock, ven I heard the girls come in 
und say. "Oh goody! the packages are here. One for Zella and a small one 
for Maria and a big one for Flower — I'll bet its eats!" 

1 had to ring dat bell three times more dat first day. for luncheon, dinner 
and vot they call studv hours. After I rang it the last time it vas so quiet 
I thought every von of those girls had died. But at nine-thirty I km 

But rea la, I like the place fine but I'm glad I'm not the talking 

machine here for every night I hear those girls say. "Let's have a dance." Then 
the poor thing plays and plays vile dem girls hop around, each von different — 
until it makes me plumb rom watching in the pantry. 

Oh yes! I most forgot to tell you ve also have five girls from the South 
here and they are vot you call the life of the partv. 

I must stop now. Lena, and rest so that I'll be able to ring those bells 
tomorrow. I'll tell you about the other girls the next time. 

Your friend.

The Nut Shell 

This year's crop of nuts is now well-grown and almost ready for the 
picking. The shape and character of the nuts change from year to year, but 
nevertheless we arc nuts of the purest kind and we are doing our utmost to 
perpetuate the nutshell. 

Otto, our illustrious sweet smelling Beau Brummel. struts four-thirds of 
times with Thelma. We are sorry. Otto, for we did not get very well 
acquainted with you in the short time you spent with us. 

Art. the infant of the bunch, won the leather medal for going out at 
least three times each with 57 varieties of girls. We sure do admire your 
ability. Art. 

Si. the songster, never sleeps where he spends the night: but has left a 
worn path on the port side of the brick walk between Lynwood and Burn- 
hams. Si. why pay room rent? 

Tom. our business man. is ready for Lynwood tonight. Is it postcards 
or girls. Tom? He is an exception to the old adage and has plenty of girls 
and almost as much business. 

Adolph. the cold-blooded blonde from the North, is our celebrated Swede 
story teller. A hick from a hick town is no better hick? If you do not 
believe us. ask Nellie. Annis. and Illma. for he has many girls. 

James upholds the scholastic honors of the shell. It takes one firm and 
steady nut to keep the rest from rolling out. James keeps the coffee pot warm 
for us and the mail man busy. Here is to him who keeps us all in school.

The Marquette Club is a society composed of the Catholic young women 
of The Stout Institute and is one of the most prominent organizations in the 
school. Its purposes are to promote the common interests of the Catholic 
young women: to create the spirit of friendship and co-operation among the 
students, by giving them a means of becoming better acquainted with one 
another: and to promote the social and other activities in the school. 

As a means of becoming acquainted with the new students, a joint picnic 
was given to the members of the La Salle and Marquette Clubs early in the 
fall. At Halloween the clubs again co-operated to give a successful dance 
for the school. Other entertainment is planned for the year. 

The meetings are held the first and third Wednesdays of the month. 
A short time is given to the business of the club: following this, an interesting 
program is given by the mem: 

Several committees have been appointed for the various activities: mission- 
ary, social relief, publicity, program, social, and finance.

work under the energetic and efficient leadership of Mr. Good, and through 
faithful cooperation, it has become a very active and successful organization. 

On February 16. a varied program was rendered in the Stout Auditorium. 
which was well attended.

have also given a dance for the school, which proved to be most interesting and 
entertaining to all.

The Stout Institute Band 

Early last fall Mr. Wilson sent out a call for Band men and in a sur- 
prisingly short time had a group of twenty-five musicians around him that 
would do credit to any school. Practice was begun at once and by the opening 
of the Football Season the Band was ready to do its bit in keeping up the 
school spirit at the games. It was an important factor in making Homecoming 
Day a success, playing practically all day. During the Basketball Season the 
Band never missed a single game and when the Special Train made the trip to 
River Falls enough money was raised by popular subscription to take the Band 
along. It played on the train going and coming from River Falls and also at 
the game. At the High School Basketball Tournament the Band gave its 
services tree. It has been heard in Assembly on several occasions and has 
always been ready and willing to play whenever called upon. The Band has 
been organized into a permanent school organization with the following officers

To promote an appreciation of all arts is the basic purpose of the "Manual 
Arts Players." The study of drama and amateur possibilities is being taken 
up all over the country, but hardly in any school has it found the background 
for work more ideal than in The Stout Institute. The reason for this is that 
here we have the specialized training necessary for those parts of stage work 
other than mere acting which mark successful drama production. These are: 
construction in woodwork, decorating, costuming, and lighting, all of which 
are given special emphasis in making plays. 

There is a wonderful spirit of co-operation throughout the faculty and 
throughout the townspeople. It is becoming recognized that the enterprise 
of this club has a great educational value. Furthermore there are. in teaching, 
many demands for help with school dramatics. 

Plays are being studied from the standpoint by which we learn to judge 
(hem. and those we present are of the very best types. They show the higher, 
finer, and more beautiful phases of life, whether thy are serious or humorous. 
One-act plays provide opportunity for a greater number of students to have 
experience not only in acting, but also in the various other arts of drama. 

Our results repay for our efforts. All that has been gained through the 
association and co-operation of the "Players" will be memories of some of the 
most worth-while hours spent in school life. In conclusion the organization 
feels from the introduction it has made for "The Little Theatre Movement" 
in Menomonie.

Time — In April. 

"And Home Came Ted" is a sprightly comedy of mystery. The thrilling 
story is cleverly written and the interest of the audience was held from begin- 
ning to end by a scries of dramatic situations rising from one climax to another 
until the final at the close of the last act. 

The action of the comedy occurred at the Rip Van Winkle Inn in the 
Catskill Mountains. The plot had to do with a struggle for supremacy in a 
furniture factory between Ted. the rightful heir and Ira Stone, the unscrupu- 
lous adventure/, who tried to gain control of the business. Ted was assisted 
by Molly Macklin. the plucky little housekeeper of the Rip Van Winkle Inn. 
Complications come fast and furious but bit by bit the mystery unravels, 
surprise followed surprise, and in the last act. the dramatic situations fairly 
team with life and sustaining interest. The real Ted turns up and the un- 
scrupulous Ira Stone was temporarily victorious, but later ignominiously 
routed, and the faithful housekeeper. Molly Macklin. finds the road to happi 
ness with Skcet. the boy from the Bowcrv.

The Stoutonia 

"The Stoutonia.'' the weekly publication of The Stout Institute, is edited 
by the Stoutonia Staff under the direction of Mr. C. W. Hague, faculty advisor, 
and the Editor-in-Chief. Herman J. Fink. The Stoutonia Staff members are 
elected because of their merits and they serve continuously from the time of 
their election until graduation. 

"The Stoutonia." publishes all current happenings, social affairs, local 
buzz, and educational topics of interest to the school. The Stoutonia fills a 
three fold purpose: as an educational medium in all developments of Indus- 
trial and Household Arts: as a means by which the student body may know 
the current news: and as a medium through which the alumni may keep in 
touch with their Alma Mater. 

It has been loyally supported financially by the subscription of the faculty, 
alumni, and student body, and by local advertisers. 

Due to their efforts the Stoutonia Staff has been able to issue a larger paper 
than in former years and has shown greater activity in contributing toward the 
social affairs of the school. On January 26. they gave the Stoutonia Prom in 
the Stout Gymnasium. The staff is planning on the construction and equip- 
ment of two tennis courts. These tennis courts will be for the use and benefit 
of the shool.

The Stoutonia Mechanical Staff 

The mechanical staff is composed of students chosen from the members 
of the advanced printing classes. They are chosen by the printing instructor, 
and serve for a period of several weeks. From time to time, new students 
relieve those who have served their term, so that all may have an opportunity 
to become acquainted with the mechanical operation of a paper. Each student 
serves as foreman of the group for at least one week: thereby giving him an 
opportunity to bear the responsibility of producing the paper. 

The mechanical staff is divided into two groups, one functioning in the 

way of make-up and press work, and the other as compositors, students who 
are taking machine composition on the Intertype and Linotype machines. 

The major part of the work is done outside of class time, and as a rule 
the students are required to work one or two evenings a week. No special 
award is made for this extra work, excepting that a certificate of practical 
experience will be granted those students when they are candidates for teach- 
ing positions. 

Many people, when thinking of a paper of any kind, think only of the 
editorial staff. It is only through the work of a good mechanical staff that 
a paper can be produced. The members of the mechanical staff deserve much 

credit and praise for the work 

they have done.

The Kid Party 

Who would ever associate the many, many little boys and girls that were 
waiting at the gym door, on Saturday night, the twenty-fifth of November, 
with the dignified Home Economics students.' If anyone could do this, they 
must, indeed, well remember their childhood days. 

Everybody was there: girls in bows and braids, girls in curls and bobs 
too. There were dainty little girls who looked like dolls: there were cute 
little girls in gingham: there were many little maids in smocks who looked 
as if they had just stepped in from "Fairyland." This party was not only 
confined to girls but boys were there, whom you would never suspect of 
being at a party with all those girls. There was Huck Finn who even had 
his face washed to come: there were the tough ones and the rough ones, and 
the sissies, who were afraid that they would soil their clothes. Paul was 
there again and many new boys who had never been seen around there before. 
Because there were not as many boys as girls, they were verv popular. Topsy 
was there with her mammy and her face just shone where it had been scrubbed. 
One little girl was there with a pink dress and hat and even curls. Who would 
ever accuse her of being a Psychology teacher in the Stout Institute' She was 
not the only little girl there that has to grace the school room five days out 
of the week. These little girls went just as whole-heartedly into the fun as 
the rest of them. 

kids were divided into three groups to think up a stunt, the winner 
getting a jar of stick candy as a reward. The first group gave an imitation 
of a toy shop which had dolls of every description. There were some that 
jumped, some that hopped, and some that said "mama." The second group 
played school. The school was to give a program so the boys and girls 
recited pieces which evoked a great deal of mirth from the audience. The 
third group recited pieces and two of them gave an "antiseptic dance" which 
was quite complicated in the various steps. 

One of the hits of the evening was a Negro Revival meeting which was 
conducted by the Southern girls. Some of the children had never been to a 
negro revival meeting so it was a novel and exciting experience for them. 

While some of the children were cutting and spreading bread with jam. 
the rest of the children had a grand march, but the eyes were on the bread 
and jam. the kind that makes you think of home and mother! After the 
grand march, all the kids spent their pennies for bread and jam and animal 
cookies, and was it good? Just ask the k 

By this time the eyes of the girls began to droop and the Sandman 
started to throw sand into the boys' eyes. so. as all children must be in bed 
early, one by one they said good night and went home to think of the days 
when they always were kids and did not have to grow up over night. 

One Hundred Fortu-fouc 


Because, at some time during the year, many of the alumni return to the 
school for a visit, this year, it was thought that it would be appropriate to 
have a Homecoming, so that all the Alumni that could come, would be here 
at the same time. The week end of October 21st and 22nd. the date of the 
River Falls-Stout football game, was chosen for this big event. Plans were 
made weeks ahead of time so that the present students could show those who 
had gone out 'in the field" that the school still felt interested in them. 

Not only did the students show their enthusiasm, but the town people 
as well. Every store window was decorated in Stout and River Falls colors. 
The students decorated the street posts, and everything that could bear colors 

was arrayed. 

At the Assembly on Friday morning. Mr. Thayer outlined the program 
which was welcomed with a great display of pep. 

On Friday evening almost every member of both departments joined in 
a torchlight procession and snake dance down Broadway and Main Street. 
Even the Stout bell gained enthusiasm from the display and pealed forth 
several tolls. When this happened, many strange white figures mysteriously 
appeared, carrying torches, preceded by the band and steam piano and followed 
by the rest of the student body. This procession wound down the street 
stopping at each corner to let out some of its pep in the form of school yells 
and the band played so that the mystery men chose partners and danced 
until the music stopped. 

The Homecoming breakfast which was held in the cafeteria started the 
day off right with pep and strength for the rest of the day. The tables were 
decorated with the spirit of the day but of course the most important thing 
was the abundance of good things to eat which Miss Payne had carefully 
planned. All during the breakfast the band let off their excess steam and old 
friends could be heard telling of their happy days at Stout. 

A little after nine o'clock a Pep Assembly was held in the Auditorium. 
As the students entered, the band played "On Wisconsin"' with such vigor 
that it made everyone's feelings overflow and they were only too glad to give 
vent to their emotions by school yells. Mr. Hague told the purposes of the 
meeting which were. I 1 » To extend a whole-hearted welcome to the Alumni, 
who had responded so heartily to the Homecoming call. (2) To give an 
expression and enthusiasm to the River Falls game held in the afternoon. 
Several speeches were made by Alumni and teachers who added their bit to 
the pep. 

In the afternoon the students joined in a procession to the football field 
lead by the band. The game was a battle from beginning to end. River Falls 

One Hundred Fonu-Rce 

getting the only score during the game. There were many protests from the 
side lines at the referees decisions, but there was nothing that could be done. 

Even after the defeat of the afternoon, the pep did not subside. A dance 
was given in the gym. for Alumni. River Falls people and students. The 
Homecomers were among the happy students who enjoyed the dance and it 
seemed just a dream to them that they were no longer here. 

Everyone felt that the purposes of the Homecoming were accomplished. 
Although for many it was the first Homecoming, it is hoped that it will not 
be the last and the event will remain in the minds of many even after this 
writeup is past and forgotten. 

Manual Arts Costume 

This was the first party of this kind that had been attempted in the 
school for some years and it certainly was a decided success. 

The Gymnasium was decorated to represent a snow scene which was 
presided over by Helen Kuntz. the snow queen. Many a gay costume appeared 
among the students and even the faculty entered into the spirit of the time 
and appeared as Spanish dancers and Mexican troubadours. 

When the time came to decide who were to get the prizes, it was hard to 
decide which should get which, but finally Martha and George got the drum 
for being the best couple present. If they had just come over from the old 
country, they could not have looked more natural. Carolla Paffrath. who 
had a new hat. which might be found under a microscope, and all dressed 
up with a purse and everything, even spit curls, took the prize for being the 
best girl. To Helen Kuntz. the snow queen, was given the box of candy for 
being the prettiest girl. 

During a wonderful waltz, confetti seemed to float down from the skies 
and fall upon the dancers who did not seem to give it a thought. 

When eleven-thirty came, it seemed as though the party had just started, 
and. except for those who were dressed too tightly for comfort or too warm 
for the atmosphere, all were loathe to depart, but rules arc rules, so after a 
pleasant evening, the guests departed. 

One Hundred Forty-six 

Junior-Senior Prom 

The Gymnasium was decorated in orange and blue for the Junior-Senior 
Prom on Friday evening. January 1 2. Festoons of orange and blue hung 
from the ceiling, almost hiding the lights. One of the centers of attraction, 
as usual, was the punch bowl at one corner of the room, which offered refresh- 
ment during the party. 

The California Movieland Syncopators furnished the music for 1 30 
couples to dance to from 9 o'clock to 1 1 :30. The music and the dim shaded 
lights all added to the enchantment of the evening. 

The chaperones for the evening were Miss Kugel. Miss Halscth. Mr. and 
Mrs. Milnes. and Mr. Welch, who helped to make a perfect evening, but 11:30 
came too soon and the guests thanked the Junior-Senior class for the pleasant 

Stoutonia Prom 

On the night of January 26. the Stoutonia Staff entertained the school 
with one of the most pleasant dances of the year. 

The Gym was transformed iato an attractive, charming room. The 
ceiling was covered by festoons of purple and green. Making a more home- 
like atmosphere were the large wicker chairs and floor lamps, which added to 
the pleasure of the evening. 

The picture was made complete by the punch bowl at one corner of the 
room and the girls who were gracefully serving the punch. What would a 
party ever be without a punch bowl? 

After the guests had all arrived and the evening was passing pleasantly, 
they all joined in a grand march, led by Herman Fink and Erna Bertrams, 
which added to the completeness of the evening. 

When eleven-thirty came all too soon, the strains of "Home. Sweet 
Home."' floated through the air. and the guests bid the chaperones good night 
and departed with memories of one of the most pleasant evenings of their 
school life. This was made possible by the chaperones. Miss Quilling. Miss 
Feldkirchner. Mr. and Mrs. Hague, and Mr. and Mrs. Hurst.

A Frequent Sight 

Ore Hundred Fifly-six 

One Hundred Fifty-seven 

Girls' Stunts 


THE most pathetic sight next to seein' a woman 
run cuta' breath, is when a bunch of dames 
gits up a crowd to see 'em pull some original 
stuff cr aboriginal stuff, whatever that means, 
and go off the stage smilin' after the show's 
over. They imagine they're good. Why, the whole 
flock cried when they went to roost that night because" 
they didn't have sense enough to charge one buck, 
whilst the only wise thing about the whole show was 
that they only charged ten cents. If they'da charged 
more, the crowd woulda mobbed 'em; only provin'

And then just because the crowd claps 'em so's that 
they'd hurry up and git the show over, these mitt- 
wobblers git conceited and imagine the crowd was 
clappin' them, which ends by these here dames chal- 
lengen the boys to do better. Imagine that stuff! If 
they was goin' to challenge us, why didn't they be fair 
and challenge us to do worst, which would revolve or 
involve more talent, which is why, as we sees it, the 
pow wow starts in the first place? Speakin' along 
there here lines: When we was told in assembly the 
other day, that whilst these here stunts was o. k., they 
shouldn't be overdone, I says to myself, "Fuller, there's 
no danger of that, the stunt of the complainin' sex was 
only half baked anyways." Not meaning, of course, 
that it was raw; but they probably had too many irons 
in the fire, if you get my meanin'.

Boys' Stunts 

Once the little boys at Stom were looking for some fun. 

So when we challenged them to siunts, they came, right on the run, 

They blazed with pep and did their best to beat us at our game; 

For they were bound to outshine us, and show that they weren't tame, 

They practiced days, they practiced nights, and wild the sounds we heard. 

From grumblings on rheir big bass drums to songs — just like a bird!'' 

And when at last the lime arrived of that great, grand event. 

We wildly clutched our one stray dime and to assembly went 

A rush for seats! Breathless suspense' 

At last the curtain rises. 

On Betas Little Red School House" with "kids " of various size. 

They showed us how a school should run and got their share of laughter. 

From an audience six hundred strong, but you ask. "What came after 

"The Mysterious Allah." a foreigner queer was next to show his skill, 

At reading minds in the audience, he brought back the dead at will. 

And answered questions long unknown, in fact so great was he 

We wondered what the Trowel Club bad to pay him for a fee! 

This act was followed by a skit in song and dance, 'twas keen 

For Menomin put its talent forth as Gallagher and Shean. 

They made a hit and did their bit to make the stunts a "go." 

And after this, the next in line was the stunt of R. K. O. 

They gave a clever little act with Toonerville as setting, 

With trolley car and passengers and even not forgetting 

Aunt Eppie and the skipper whom you've seen so many times 

With Ben Turpin in the movies, but lest 1 mix my rhymes. 

Let me tell you of the next act: How La Salle Club and its actors 

A melodrama gave for us, with many thrilling factors. 

The curtain raised by a foot or two still gave us to understand 

Of a lady fair, her loves and trials, and how at last her hand 

Is won by our hero, (the one in tan shoes), and all ends well, you see. 

The orchestra did its part as well in adding to our glee; 

In fact, dear boys, we'll hand to you the medal and the prize 

We didn't know you could do it, but we'll have to believe our eyes.

AFTER watchin* the faculty do their stuff, the public is now looking for- 
ward to better times and was also glad to see Doc Howison in the audi- 
ence. Amongst many criticisms which the public made was that the 
show shouldn't have been held before supper as it spoiled supper for many 
folks, which isn't much compared with other things that were done. In fact 
the only T. L. the public had to offer was that they though the teachers did 
a lot in the way of preparation considerin' they was teachers. 

Of course Mr. Hurst delayed the main show about a week, as he needed 
more time to think of some original dope. It must have been hard for Mr. 
Hurst to think of things to say. but it was harder for Miss Philips to keep 
from saying things while playin" in the orchestra. Speakin' of the orchestra. 
if Mr. Wilson keeps on directin'. he's liable to get St. Vitus dance as I knew 
a man once who did that. 

Now Mr. Welch & Co.'s act was O. K.. as anything he does is all right, 
howthesomevcr the reason they didn't saw Dave Fields through with a saw 
is because anybody can see through him anyways, especially the women and 
girls goin' to school here. 

One thing that everybody noticed was that Miss Messer was not actin" 
which was due to the confusion which would have arose in keepin' the drops 
and curtains high enough. The reason Mr. Bowman took so many parts. 
was to impress on the audience that he could be busy once in a while in some 
things, and the business office and Abiko did pretty good as it is winter and 
there bein' no veget. on the markets. The rest of the teachers nothing can't 
be said against, as they aren't funny anyway. J. FULLER BUNK

The Hikers of this year have established some new records. A hike to 
Eau Claire was made in five and one-half hours. The largest number of 
miles per week was made by Cady (67 miles). Schneppmueller and Ridling- 
ton finished the required number of miles i 200) in five weeks.

Girls' Athletic Association 

The Girls' Athletic Association is an outgrowth of the Girl's Hikers 
Club. The field of activities is much broader than before. The Association 
encourages athletics of all kinds, both indoor and outdoor sports. Among the 
activities indulged in by the girls are hiking, swimming, canoeing, baseball, 
basketball, and tennis. The Association presents a letter "S" to every member 
who hikes one hundred miles during the school year. There were several 
girls who received their letters at the end of the first semester, and there will 
be a large number who will be qualified by the end of the year. Some of the 
favorite hikes were to Paradise Valley: the County Asylum, out on the Stout 
road: Menomonie Junction: and to Eau Claire. No hike less than five miles 
could be recorded. 

In the fall the girls enjoyed baseball games which were played at the 
Stout Home. In the spring tennis was the favorite sport, tournaments being 
held between the various groups of the organization.

A Review of the Season 

About fifty men turned out for practice when Coach Miller sent out his 
first call for players. Then came several weeks of hard practice before the first 
game — weeks in which the Stout students and faculty waited and watched to 
see what would replace the State Champions of 1921. 

Graduation played havoc with the 1921 team, the entire line being lost 
and most of the backfield. The season at first looked bright, however, as the 
season wore on and injuries reduced the number of available veterans, the out- 
look grew daily more gloomy. Chard, one of the mainstays of the team, was 
injured early in the season and was able to take part in but two games. He 
was never at his best. Niles. regular quarterback, was unable to report, and 
Judish was lost to the team through the latter part of the season. Brince was 
disabled mid-season and handicapped throughout. Of all the veterans of the 
preceding year only Joyce. Damberg. and Borchardt were able to play regularly. 

The first game of the season was played with the Hamline University 
Reserves, a strong team from the Twin Cities. Everyone was eager to see how 
the Stout machine would operate. The Stout line was able to hold and the 
visitors were unable to gain consistently. 

The game started with a fifty yard kick-off by Levant. Hamline could 
not make downs and was forced to punt. Judish returned the ball forty yards 
through a broken field. The crowd groaned, for just as he dived over the last 
tackier, be was thrown high in the air and landed on his face. Judish returns 
to the game. The first point was made soon after when Damberg scored a 
drop kick from the twenty-eight yard line. Two more drop kicks were tried

in the game but both proved unsuccessful. The first half ended Stout 3 — 
Hamline 0. 

The third quarter was uneventful. The fourth quarter started with the 
ball on Hamline's twenty-two yard line. Joyce carried the ball for a gain of 
five yards around end. Damberg added four through the line and Judish added 
twelve more. Damberg made no gain. Joyce carried the ball over for a touch- 
down. Damberg missed the kick for point. Final score: Stout 9 — Ham- 
line 0. 

The second game of the season was with Stevens Point Normal, and 
here Stout was forced to give instead of take. Outweighed at least fifteen 
pounds per man. Stout put up a game but a losing fight. The visitors made 
the most of their gains through the long end runs of their captain. Stout's 
secondary defense played a brilliant game and with the long punts of Captain 
Damberg kept the visitors scoreless for the first half. First half. Stout — 
Stevens Point 0. 

The greater weight of the Pointers line began to show early in the second 
half. The gains of the visitors became longer and longer, despite the defense 
of the Stout goal line and the 'they shall not pass spirit - " of the home guard. 
Stevens Point scored an easy drop kick and a touchdown in the third quarter. 
Final score. Stevens Point 1 — Stout 0. 

The big game of the season was. of course, the River Falls game. The 
event had been planned for since the first week of school and it was planned 
to be the biggest Homecoming in the history of Stout. The band which had 
been organized a short time before was whipped up into shape, and it did 
much to make the pep meetings the successes that they were. For a week or 
more the subject around every fireside in Menomonie was the outcome of the 
homecoming game. Practice teachers discussed it with their pupils. The town

was all dressed up in the red and white of River Falls and the dear old blue, 
and white of Stout. The whole town was waiting anxiously. 

On the night before the game, a pajama parade was staged on the main 
streets of the town. Another parade marched expectantly from the buildings 
at one o'clock the next day. The game itself was one of the hardest fought 
games in the history of Stout. Sad hearted and weary lunged was the crowd 
that left the field at the close of that game. 

In the first quarter the ball moved back and forth from one end of the 
field to the other. In the second quarter a series of line plunges and successful 
end runs plus a penalty brought the ball just too close to the home goal line. 
Two attempts at downs were unsuccessful in themselves but they brought the 
ball into the center of the field where River Falls kicked it and the game for a 
goal. First half: River Falls 3 — Stout 0. 

In the second half Stout opened up with an aerial attack and completed 
two thirty-five yard passes. These and a couple fake end runs took the ball 
to the opponent's ten yard line. Damberg passed to Joyce who touched the 
ball, but the pass was not completed. The ball then rolled over the goal line 
where a River Falls man fell upon it. An unfortunate decision by the offi- 
cials who ruled this a touchback instead of an incompleted forward pass, gave 
the ball to River Falls who booted out of danger. Try as thev would. Stout 
could not again get within scoring distance. River Falls played a strictly 
defensive game and kicked on first downs. In the fourth quarter Judish went 
out of the game with an injury which put him out for the balance of the 
season. Card was retired to the sidelines too. The game ended River Falls 3 
— Stout 0. So the bonfire did not burn that night. 

The three games played thus far demonstrated that Stout had good 
defense, but lacked the punch and experience to put the ball across. In three

games only one touchdown and three drop kicks had been negotiated. Facing 
the final game of the season at Superior. Coach iMiller bent all effort into get- 
ting his cripples into shape. Bleakley. regular center, and Judish. regular quar- 
ter, were unable to accompany the team. Superior smarting under the recol- 
lections that Stout had the previous year put them out of the running, scored 
a touchdown in the first few minutes of play and one in each quarter after 
that. The day was very windy, making passing and kicking almost impossible. 
In the last quarter Stout held the opponents on the three yard line on two 
different occasions. The third time that the Superior warriors advanced they 
made their touchdown. On the fourth down with only a foot to go. their 
half back dived high over the mass of struggling players and crossed the goal 
line. This type of playing showed again that what Stout lacked in ability, was 
made up in fighting spirit. Final score. Superior 26 — Stout 0. 

The football season saw the formation of a band such as no other normal 
school or college in the state can boast of. A band is the best sort of a stimu- 
lant for pep and school spirit: and if it lives on from year to year, we can call 
that almost enough of a success for one football season. Mr. Wilson was 
responsible to a great degree for the success of the band. 

The team was well supported by the students and townspeople, which made 
the season quite a success financially. 

Thus from the sublime heights of an undefeated State Champion to a 
position of a tail ender is the history of the 1922 team: but in spite of the 
fact that of the seventeen men on the team who were awarded letters, only one 
will return. Next year the indominitable fighting spirit of Stout will again 
weld together a team that will carry the Stout colors forward. As we and 
some of the Alumni remember. Stout has seen better days, and "history repeats 
itself": so let us hope for another championship team in the near future.

The Basketball Season 

After a somewhat disastrous season of football, the Stout students were 
anxious to see what the basketball season had in store. Practice began about 
the middle of November under Athletic Director Miller who coached the team 
until just before the Christmas holidays, when it was turned over to Coach 
Brown who later picked out the squad. Many of the men who came out for 
practice were Freshmen, some of them being men of high caliber. I he rest of 
the men were those left over from last year's team. 

The first game of the season with Stevens Point Normal unfortunately 
came the day after the re-opening of school. The men who went on this 
trip had had very little practice for two weeks, and no five had played together 
as a team. Stevens Point, because of a short high gym. was able to make 
many long, arching shots which placed them in the lead at the end of the halt 
bv a score of 1 5 to 7. The second half was more evenly balanced, for the 
Pointers made but eleven points to Stout's ten. Stout used the short pass 
and shot route to most of their baskets. The game ended. Stevens Point 26— 

Stout 17. ... 

The Platteville Normal game was somewhat more refreshing. I latteviiie 
was making a tour of the northern part of the state. The first part of the game 
was very close until two field goals were made by Niles in the latter part of 

One Hundred Eighty-Ace 

the half which ended 14 to 9 in favor of Stout. During the second half this 
lead was kept about the same and towards the end. almost all of the Stout 
substitutes were put into the game. Hyde was removed from the game just 
before the final whistle because of an injury which made it impossible for him 
to play. Final score. Stout 27 — Platteville 21. 

The next evening Stout easily won from the University of Minnesota 
Aggies at St. Paul. Although they had played a hard game the night before 
they were able to rack up twelve points before the Aggies had a chance to 
score. The Farmers lacked their regular center and forward so they were 
handicapped to some extent. The game was fast, but one-sided, as the final 
score stood Stout 29 — U. of M. Aggies 8. 

On the evening of January 19 Stout downed another of their Minnesota 
neighbors, the Winona Normal. At no time was the score in danger. Both 
teams did good passing, but Stout's shooting at times was poor. Olson made 
twelve points during the game, including a few spectacular plays. During the 
last half Stout tallied up only one more point than their opponents. Final 
score. Stout 28 — Winona 17. 

The Minnesota All Stars were booked to fill the open date of January 26. 
This team was an independent team from the Twin Cities. The game started 
off with a rush. Stout displaying an offensive far superior to that of any other 
game of the season. Signals worked perfectly and one shot after another went 
through the hoop. The subs played most of the second half which ended 
Stout 64— All Stars 15. 

As a preliminary game the Stout Reserves played the Company A team. 
The game was unusually rough but exciting. Garity starred with some fast 
floor work and good shooting. The game ended Reserves 19 — Company 
A 16. 

One of the best games of the season was the return Stevens Point game. 
The Pointers had a cracking good team. They watched the ball every minute 
and their passing and shooting was superb. Stout in the first half was appar- 
ently fussed and missed most of their shots, several being directly under the 
basket. The half ended 13 to 10 with Stevens Point in the lead. 

Between halves the team must have been given a vocal stimulant by Coach 
Brown because they came back with a burst of speed which netted them five 
baskets in a few minutes. The Pointers, it seems, must have lost their horse 
shoe for they were as uncertain as Stout was in the first half. Both teams tried 
many long shots but the passing remained very good. Final score. Stout 25 — 
Stevens Point 1 8. 

Two nights after the Stevens Point game Stout played our undefeated 
rivals. River Falls. The Stout team was off form and River Falls had no 
trouble keeping the game their own after the first few minutes were over. The 
Fall's style of playing might not have been as spectacular as Stevens Point's 
but it surely was effective. River Fall's passing was much better than Stout's 

One Hundred Eighty six 

and the men made only a small percentage of the baskets that they tried for. 
Final score. River Falls 23 — Stout 9. 

Hibbing Junior College filled in the date left open by the U. of M. Aggies. 
The Rangers used a novel style of play with a stationary forward, long, high 
passes, and signals for the attack as they tried to go through the five man de- 
fense. Hibbing*s guarding was poor and Stout had little difficulty in making 
her points. Olson and Judish made the majority of the field goals. The 
Reserves played the greater part of the last half. Stout 21 — Hibbing 1 3. 

February 23 the team left on a two day trip to play River Falls and Supe- 
rior Normals. Late in the afternoon a special train pulled out for River Falls 
carrying with it the Stout Band, students, faculty, and many townspeople, 
in all 190 strong. The game was a disappointment to the fans, but the train, 
band, and pep showed the team. River Falls, and 'to whom it may concern." 
that Stout was willing to stand behind its team. Because of sickness Captain 
McDonald was unable to play in the game. 

The game at River Falls was more or less "nip and tuck'* for the first 
half. At one time the score stood Stout 4 — River Falls 3. Soon after this 
though the Falls men secured the lead which they kept. First half River Falls 
11 — Stout 8. 

The sure, fast playing of the Falls men began widening the margin early 
in the second half, though few of the shots were made close in to the basket. 
Knilans and Olson were able to penetrate the defense quite often but they were 
followed too close to allow shooting. Final score. River Falls 27 — Stout 1 4. 

The next day the team continued on its way to Superior where they 
played the normal in one of the best games that the Superior team played this 
year. The Superior team had all of its first string men out: two or three 
being sick in all the other games of the year. The game was hard fought and 
somewhat rough at times. The final score saw Stout far in the rear, for it 
stood 31 to 1 7 in favor of Superior. 

The last game of the season was the return game of Superior. This 
game turned out to be the most exciting game of the season, also the roughest. 
This was proven by the fact that each team made but one field goal in the 
first half though it ended 8 to 8. The whole game sesawed back and forth 
from the first to the last whistle. Captain McDonald made 1 2 free throws 
and 3 field goals despite close guarding. Final score. Stout 24 — Superior 20.

The Frosh-Soph Basket Game 

The annual Freshman-Sophomore basketball game ended as quite a sur- 
prise to many of the students and faculty of the Stout Institute. When the 
final whistle blew, the score board announced to the world that the Frosh were 
victories by a score of 22 to 2 1 . The dope before the game said that the strong 
sophomore team should win because four of its men had played together the 
previous year on the Stout regular team. 

The defeat of the sophomore team was caused by a little over-confidence 
and five exceptionally good men in the freshman class. The game was fast to 
say the least, and showed plenty of old time fight on both sides, for the two 
teams knew that they were well matched and that they could encounter a hard 
fight. The wearers of the green might have run up a higher score if they had 
had more of a chance to practice together, and if they had had a little more 
self-confidence. The game was close from one sound of the whistle to the 
other: thus it was a very good game to watch. 

But in the defeat of the sophomore team with its four regular men. we can 
see prospects of a good team next year. May they have the greatest possible 
success, for they will fight for the honor of Stout. 

Club Basketball 

In the last several years much interest has been taken in Intermural Ath- 
letics in all parts of the country. This is an attempt to enable more 
students to participate and receive the benefits of the sports. In some schools 
only a dozen men go out for basketball and twice as many for football so that 
only a small percentage of the students have an opportunity to develop them- 
selves physically. In the universities they have all sorts of interclub. inter- 
fraternal and interclass athletics including baseball, track, basketball, bowling, 
football, hockey, etc. 

A year ago Stout introduced this phase of athletics and it met with great 
success. This year the basketball games were better attended and as a result, 
more interesting than last year. Much feeling was aroused between the rival 
clubs so that the gym was often crowded with students and townspeople. 

The Hikers, the winner of the Junck trophy, had the best material of any 
of the clubs and with a great deal of conscientious practice were able to go thru 
the season undefeated. The La Salle team was not as well organized but it had 
some good material and always put up a hard fight. The Y. M. C. A. team 

One Hundred Eighty-eight 

Stayed in the running for a greater part of the season but they were too 
finicky to do real work. On an off night they played a full half without 
scoring. The Menomins, the winners of last years cup. did not show up as 
well as was thought they should have considering the material they had. Sev- 
eral of the games ended with only a point difference in score. 

Seventy-five games were played in all and about fifty-two men took part.

The Tug of War 

The annual Stout Water Carnival or tug-of-war was held Monday. 
October 9th between 4:30 and 5:00 P. M. This, the first athletic event of 
the season severely dampened the hopes of the freshmen for no more green 
caps. The freshman team went heroically down to defeat and wetness. 

The crowd of students and the townspeople began to assemble on the 
Stout lot at about 4:30. A little later the rope was brought down by the 
freshmen who were attired in overalls, swimming suits, and other light cos- 
tumes. The tug itself was as short and snappy as usual. — if anything it was 
snappier than it was short. The frosh didn't give up. however, until the last 
man was dragged through the mud and water. 

Then began the great triumphal march back to the gym. and no more 
dejected set of captives ever graced the triumph of a Roman general. 

The sophomore team was composed of nearly all football men: so the 
deated shoe was a strong factor in their favor. This contest was to decide 
whether or not the freshmen were to wear the red buttons on their caps the 
remainder of the year: and since they lost, it will be impossible for them to 
discard the little jewel from the top of their crowns.

The Gym Team 

In the latter part of February the Gym Team began practice under the coaching ( 
Miller. Brust. the only man left from the Championship team of 1922. was elected caprain. 
The team practiced daily from then until the day of the tournament. 

On April 10 the team gave its first exhibition before the assembly. The exercises 
met with the enthusiastic approval of the students who all agreed that the team was as good as 
the previous year's team. 

The team of nine men left for Minneapolis April 1 3 to compete for the P. M. Kohl cup 
the next day. The cup is given as an award to the team which wins it the most number of 
times in five years. Stout and St. Olaf have each had the cup for one year 

In the tournament Stout lose to St. Olaf by the close score of 88.7 to 88.4. This means 
that Stout must win not onlv next vear but the year after that also. The prospects for next 
year are good considering the fact that seven of the nine men will return to school.

Early in the winter a ski-tower was erected on Govin's Hill. Most of the skiing was done 
by West Burdick. Alvcrn Damberg. and unomonic boys. The first tournament of the 

season was held February 4. At this time "Danie" was chosen to represent Stout at the 
National Amateur Ski Tournament which was held February tenth at Minneapolis. 

At this meet there were 220 men from all parts of the United States. Each man 
allowed but three jumps and there was no time for practice. Since the tower was one hundred 
feet high, or about three times as high as the tower be was used to. Damberg was unable to 
make a winning jump. The tournament was won by Anders Haugen by a one hundred twenty- 
two foot jump. 

The college tournament was held the next day on rhe fortv foot scaffold. The longest 
jump was made by Strom who jumped a distance of eightv feet. The jump made by Damberg 
was one of seventy-three feet. 

This sport is not supported by the school so that ir is left to the individual men who 
are interested. The trip out to Govin's hill forms quite an excursion for Sunday afternoons in 
the winter months.

For several yean Stout has had no track team but this year the sport was revived. Mr. 
Fields was appointed coach of the team. In 1916. the last year that they had track. Stout in 
the last meet of the - feated River Falls and won a large loving cup. Several teams had 

been organized in previous vcar and all had met with considerable success. 

This year. Coach Fields sent out a call for track men and nearly fifty men signed up. 
Because of cold weather, practice began in the gym. which consisted of wrestling, track work 
for the runners, and work on the horizontal bar for the weight men. 

It was planned to have joint meets with neighboring schools: baseball in the morning 
and track in the afternoon or vice versa. This plan allows men to participate in both sports. 
The athletic department negotiated with Minnesota colleges. River Falls and La Crosse 



Under the direction of Coach Brown baseball was started about the middle of March. 
Practice began indoors but as soon as weather would permit the team moved out of doors to 

The last Stout baseball team, the team of 1919. went through the season without a defeat. 
The teams of previous years all met with considerable success. 

So far the season's schedule includes two games with River Falls and two with La Crosse 
Normal. It is planned also to book games with several Minnesota colleges. 

If the experience of the candidates indicates anything Stout should have a sucessful season in 
baseball. It is good that this sport has been revived after its lapse of several years.

Alumni of The Stout Institute, who received the B. S. degree, are grow- 
ing in numbers very rapidly, as a comparison between the number of 1918 
graduates and the 1922 graduates shows. Each year brings more students, who 
take the four year course to prepare for a more useful and better career, and 
each year finds Stout degree Alumni taking the highest positions in the House- 
hold and Industrial Arts fields. 

We are printing a complete list of degree graduates, and letters from a 
few of them. Space does not permit our publishing all of the interesting 
letters received.

To the Tower: 

Two-thirds of that illustrious class of 1918 who first received .1 degree from Stout Insti- 
tute, are now here in Ames, Iowa. That two-thirds means Mr. J. V. Lynn and myself. 

Mr. Lynn is doing a fine piece of work in the Engineering Extension Department here. 
though of course he will be too modest to tell you so. 

Other Stout grads in Ames are: Katherinc Schultz who received her degree in 1919, is 
now Mrs. B. L. Johnson. Eda Lord Murphy of the 1912 class received her degree from Ames 
last spring, During her four years here. Miss Murphy has built up a strong Institutional 
Administration Department. Maefred McKenzic. 1916. is teaching sewing in ths College here. 
Jessie McCorkingdale. 1915. received her degree from Ames in 1921 and taught sewing here 
one year. Last summer she married Mr. Frank Kerckes of the Engineering faculty. Dora 
Clark. 1913. is now Mrs. Wm. C. Lunberg, Jr. Mrs. Lunbcrg is assistant manager of The 
Maples, an excellent tea room on the campus. 

The enrollment in the Home Economics Division is 1,040 girls. We have to spread out 
into six buildings but we hope for a new building next year. 

Miss Anna C Richardson, formerly National Director of Vocational Education, has come 
to be our new Dean. Under her direction the graduate work is rapidly developing. 

In my four years here. I have grown very loyal to Ames, but my greatest loyalty will 
always be to Stout. I feel that what ever success I may gain in my work I owe to the inspira- 
tion I received from Dr. Harvery. We were indeed privileged who knew him. 

With beM wishes to the class of 1923. 

Associate Professor Home Economics. 

Minor. N. D. March 5, 192 3. 
Members of The Tower Staff of 1923: 

As 1 read the list of 1922 Stout graduates and where they are leaching, in a recent issue 
of the Stoutonia. it seemed to me that the class of 1922 is more scattered than the average one. 
It is very easily seen that the alumni of Stout have it in their power to do more by way of 
one hundred per cent performance towards the continued success of Stout than any amount of 
advertising that could be distributed. 

People in Wisconsin tend 10 spenk of North Dakota much as ihey would of a foreign 
country, but I have yet to find a place where there is more real community, spirit, a truer sense 
of co-operation with, and appreciation of the school than there is in Minot. In Minot with 
its population of twelve thousand we have a Senior High School wirh an enrollment of six 
hundred and seventy-five and a Junior High school of three hundred and seventy-five. Thcrf 
arc three of us in the Industrial Arts department and the following courses are offered: Junior 
High school — 'Woodwork, sheet metal work, electricity, printing and mechanical drawing 
In the Senior High School — Elementary woodwork, auto mechanics, cabinet making, printing 
sheet metal work, mechanical, architectural and machine drafting. 

I do not think you could have selected a more appropriate title for the Stout Annual and 
I am looking forward to the time when it will be off the press. 

Success to the class of 192 3 and the Tower Staff.

The writer, through his position with Iowa State College of Agriculture and Mechanic 
Arts in addition to regular instructor training for the trades and industries, has been working 
in industrial plants of the state, building up an interest in vocational education through confer- 
ences with foremen on the problems of supervision, management, and instruction. During the 
last three years access has been gained to the metal industries, the woodworking industries, tex- 
tiles, clothing, rubber tires, clay products, printing, meat packing, and railway locomotive 
repair shops, thus giving most valuable experience and extending service to a range of activities 
not included in the average school list. Training in industry by public school effort will 
become in time an accepted program.

Menomonie and Its Advantages

ih School and Part of Lake Menomin. Photo b> Bdali Studio 

Menomonie. home of The Stout Institute, claims marked advantages from 
manv viewpoints. Not only is it known throughout the country as a city of 
educational initiative, but it is commanding increasing attention for other excel- 
lent reasons. It is noted as a city of good homes: a city about which revolves 
the life of a rich, progressive and promising agricultural communitv: the center 
ilxnost unlimited water power, developed and undeveloped, a city which 
holds forth exceptional prospects to the manufacturer: favored with splendid 
transportation facilities, it invites the attention of those interested in distribution: 
located upon the banks of the Red Cedar river and lake Menomin. and sur- 
rounded by a beautiful country in which abound streams that .ire well stocked 
with fish, it is in the heart of a paradise for the disciples of Isaac Walton, while 
the fertile prairies and restful valleys within easy distance are a lure alike to the 
homeseeker and the tourist. 

Among the industries which support this thriving community, agricul- 
ture must be accorded first position. Originally a part of a great timber dis- 
trict and the seat of the operations of the famous Knapp. Stout and Company, 
lumber manufacturers. Dunn County has gradually evolved into one of the 
richest farming areas in Northern Wisconsin. Dairying is the line of farming 
that is most favored and a tour through the districts contiguous to Menomonie 
i:: variably surprises the traveler by the character of the farm homes which it 
reveals. According to the latest assessment the equalized property valuation in 
Dunn County is S48.907.048. the greater part of which is on the farms which 
have Menomonie as their trading center.

The latest figures available show the value of the dairv products shipped 
from Dunn County to be $5,106,958.63 for one year. Wisconsin is known as 
the greatest dairy state in the Union and Dunn County ranking fourth among 
the seventy-one counties in the state in the output of butter, the 1922 ouput 
being 6.000.000 pounds, valued at $2. 700.000. In Dunn County there are 
fifteen creameries, each contributing its share to the reputation Wisconsin but- 
ter enjoys for quality throughout the world. The combined output of the 
three creameries located in and near Menomonie. namely, those operated by the 
New Hudson Road. Rusk and Downsville Co-operative Creamery companies, 
in 1922 reached the enormous amount of 2.543.000 pounds of butter. The 
cash receipts of these three plants for the year amounted, in round figures, to 
SI. 095. 500. 00. Dunn County has eight cheese factories also. The increase in 
the number of fine dairy cows accounted for the banner year in production, 
notwithstanding a general depression in business throughout the country which 
was so severe in the grain growing sections as almost to prostrate agricultural 

Because of the great number of pure-bred and high grade dairy cattle owned 
within a radius of eight miles of the city the John Wildi Evaporated Milk Com- 
pany a few years ago selected Menomonie as the location of its newest. largest 
and finest milk condensary. This splendid plant was opened in the spring of 
1917 at a cost of $250,000. It is now owned and operated by the Nestles 
Food Company. Its success was instantaneous and it has become the market 
for an ever widening territory with a capacity of 150.000 to 200.000 pounds 
of fluid milk a day or a daily output of 1 .500 to 2.000 cases of the factory prod- 
uct, necessitating normally the employment of 150 to 200 persons, no small 
industry of itself, to say nothing of the activity involved in producing the raw

Many farmers are now interested in the raising of pure bred cattle and the 
county has become famous for its pure-breds. Loral breeders have been known 
to pay as high as $18,000 for one animal, brought here with the purpose of 
improving the stock of this vicinity. The breeds most favored are Holstein- 
Friesian. Guernsey. Jersey. Ayrshire. Short Horn and Hereford. 

While there has been a constant and consistent rise in the value of farm 
land about Menomonie the community is fortunate in that it has experienced 
no artificial inflation, such as has characterized the period following the war 
in some sections. Consequeently the lands are not over-encumbered and there 
is room ahead for a healthy development without a setback. While lands in 
the immediate vicinity of Menomonie bring a good price there are many oppor- 
tunities for investment with a prospect of discharging any reasonable indebted- 
ness within a few years. 

Wisconsin as a whole in 1922 achieved the distinction of being one of 
the most prosperous states in the Union, and official records show that Dunn 
County has surpassed in material progress the average county of the state. This 
is well proved in the actual value of the land. In 1911 the average value of all 
land in Dunn County was $34.25 per acre. In 1921 the average for the 
county was $92.50 per acre. In 1922 the average for the entire state was 
$44.25 and in 1921 it was $83.00 an acre. 

There are other thriving industries in Menomonie closely linked with 
agricultural interests. One of these is the Wisconsin Milling Company, operat- 
ing a plant originally owned by Knapp. Stout and Company, but which has 
more than kept pace with the progress of the times in methods of operation 
and mechanical efficiency since the old lumber days. The Wisconsin Milling 
Company interests itself in the growing of the best quality of grains in the 
surrounding territory and gives every encouragement to maximum production 
per acre. It affords a fine home market for local grains, but this being a dairy 
country it does not depend upon local production for its supply but ships in

large quantities of grain from western markets for its use. Its mill in Menomo- 
nie is the third largest flour mill in Wisconsin, having a daily capacity of 600 
barrels. In addition to wheat flour it manufactures a full line of cereals as well 
as special dairy products and handles feeds, coarse grains and hay. The com- 
pany has capital stock of $175,000 and carries forty employees on its pay 
roll, which amounts to $40,000 annually. 

Another important local industry depending upon agriculture for its 
material is the Menomonie Milling Company. This Company manufactures 
high grade pearl barley and other barley products. During the late war it served 
a useful purpose for the government in the manufacture of substitutes as did 
also the Wisconsin Milling Company. The Menomonie Milling Company has 
capital stock of $31,070 and an annual pay roll of $13,000. Its daily capacitv 
is 1 25 barrels. 

Underlying the western part of Menomonie and adjacent lands are vast 
beds of clay of the highest quality for the manufacture of building brick. 
Three large concerns are engaged in the manufacture of this product, namely 
the Hydraulic-Press Brick Company, a corporation which has many yards 
throughout the country with headquarters at St. Louis. Mo. : the Excelsior Brick 
Company and the Wisconsin Red Pressed Brick Company, both of which are 
owned by local capital. These companies have a combined capacity of about 
30.000.000 brick a year and employ upwards of 200 men at high wages. 
Menomonie brick have a reputation throughout the Northwest for quality and 
they are frequently called for in specifications for important buildings in several 
states. It is believed that the loral clays are suitable for other important prod- 
ucts and excellent returns are promised to capitalists who may be interested in 
the manufacture of articles for which Menomonie clay beds would supply the 
raw material.

The Holland Piano Manufacturing Company, of which George B. Norris 
of Minneapolis is president, has a highly successful factory in Menomonie 
which stands as a monument to the progressiveness of the business men of the 
city, inasmuch as the industry was located here through the activity of the 
Menomonie Commercial Club. Through the enterprise of present and former 
managements a large business has been developed, the factory now having a 
daily capacity of fifteen pianos. Only high grade pianos and player pianos are 
made here. The company has a capital stock of $200,000 with an average 
annual payroll of $125,000. The normal working-force consists of 150 

Another important industry is the cigar factory of Anderson Bros.. Inc. 
This company is capitalized at $40,000. has thirty-two employees and in 1921 
manufactured approximately 2.000.000 cigars. Its plant is the largest cigar 
factory in the Northern half of Wisconsin. Associated with this concern is the 
A. B. Leaf Tobacco Company, having a capital stock of $50,000. of which 
$31 .000 is paid in. It started business in 1920 as packers of leaf tobacco with 
warehouses in Barron. Wisconsin. 

Unique among the industries of the city is the Litnum Bronze Company, 
manufacturing a special bronze, the composition of which is a secret. The 
company has a fine factory which is now turning out acid-resisting valves for 
a corporation located elsewhere. It executes orders for bronze castings for 
other companies which require a metal of unusual strength. The company is 
capitalized at $1,000,000. Fifteen men are now employed.

About the beginning of 1922 the Forster Foundry Company was incor- 
porated, taking over the business of the Aetna Engine Works. This company 
is capitalized at SI 0.000. doing a general foundry and machine shop business 
which employs on an average eight skilled men. 

The Menomonie Dairy Company is operating under the management of 
H. J. Vigels in the manufacture of ice cream, besides doing a general dairy busi- 
ness. The output of ice cream manufactured amounts to about 50.000 gallons 
a year. 

In addition to the above Menomonie is the home of two well-equipped 
printing offices, one of which issues the Dunn County News, the largest weekly 
newspaper published in Wisconsin, and a number of smaller industries. 

In retail lines Menomonie is acknowledged one of the best cities of its size 
in the state. Shoppers come here from many miles around, including the 
inhabitants of other cities and villages, being attracted by the complete, up-to- 
date and high-quality stocks of goods. The assessed value of the merchants' 
stocks is $623,274. One large department store alone carries a stock worth 

Surrounded by so productive an agricultural area and with local business 
places in so flourishing a condition, it naturally follows that the banking busi- 
ness should make a splendid showing. And such is the case. There are four 
banks in the city, the First National, the Schutte 8 Juilling. the Bank of 
Menomonie. and the Kraft State Bank. The capital, surplus and undivided 
profits of these institutions total the sum of S496.343.10. The deposits of the

four banks aggregate S4.1 23.248.02. These are figures taken from the state- 
ment of March 3. 1923. The gain in deposits was S459. 102.63. 

Its proximity to the great railway gateways of St. Paul and Minneapolis 
and to the rail and water terminals at Superior and Duluth. together with its 
short haul from the mineral and timber districts of the Northwest, gives 
Menomonie unusual advantages in obtaining raw materials as well as in getting 
its products to market. It is located on two great railway systems, the Chicago. 
St. Paul. Minneapolis and Omaha (comprising part of the Northwestern sys- 
tem) and the Chicago. Milwaukee & St. Paul, about sixty-seven miles east of 
St. Paul. The earnings at their stations here of these two roads are indicative 
of the vast volume of trade which centers at this point. The total amount of 
freight received in 1922 was approximately 220.000.000 pounds, on which 
was paid about $290,595.69. The total amount of freight forwarded was 
about 148.000.000 pounds, on which was paid $178,929.13. The ticket 
sales of the two roads approximated $79,705.87. The combined earnings of 
these lines at Menomonie were therefore in round figures over $549,000 for the 
year. From business done thus far in 1923. the year promises to equal in 
activity that of 1922. 

Included in the transportation facilities of the city and county must be 
mentioned the improved highway system that is now being developed. Two 
federal aid trunk lines pass through the city, one known as No. 12. running 
east and west, and the other. No. 25. extending north and south. The former 
is the state's most direct and best highway connecting Chicago and the Twin 
Cities. The other forms part of the shortest route between southwestern Wis- 
consin and the cities at the head of Lake Superior. Another federal trunk line. 
No. 64. cuts across the northern part of Dunn County east and west. Besides 
these arteries of interurban traffic the county is developing a system of good 
roads with Menomonie as the center. 

The city of Menomonie is under the commission form of government, 
governmental affairs being in the hands of a mayor and two councilmen. How 
well the people are satisfied with this system was indicated in the fall of 1920. 

Tn'o Hundred Three 

when by an overwhelming vote the electors decided not to return to the old 
aldermanic form. The city has several miles of well paved streets, a fine White 
Way system in the business district, and many imposing public and private 
buildings which give the place a metropolitan aspect. Among the public build- 
ings may be mentioned the commanding structures which form the home of The 
Stout Institute, a Federal Building, the Mabel Tainter Memorial, a beautiful 
stone edifice presented to the city about thirty years ago by the late Capt. 
Andrew Tainter. which contains a completely equipped theatre, public library, 
rooms for the G. A. R. and W. R. C. amusement rooms, dining room. etc.. 
available for public use: Masonic Temple. County Court House. City Hall. etc. 

The total assessed value of all property in the city is $6,028,915. Total 
personal property assessed at SI. 428. 555. The commission keeps taxes down 
to as low a point as is consistent with good service, the rate this year being about 
.027 on each dollar of assessed valuation. This rate is among the lowest known 
for cities of the same class in Wisconsin. 

The city maintains a fine public hospital at which the charges are made as 
reasonable as possible. It owns several parks, in addition to which are a beau- 
tiful parkway along the lake frontage and other pleasure grounds along the 
lake and streams, owned nd controlled by the Menomonie Improvement Asso- 
ciation, which are much enjoyed by residents, students and visitors in the 
summer months. 

The spiritual requirements of the community are provided for by eleven 
different churches, as follows: Congregational. Unitarian. Roman Catholic. 
Episcopal. Methodist Episcopal. German Methodist Episcopal. Baptist, two 
German Lutheran. Norwegian Lutheran and Evangelical Association, all of 
which have substantial church homes. Several have commodious parsonages. 
The pulpits are filled with men of ability and the auxiliary organizations reach 
out into the community life in a way to greatly extend the church influence. 

Surviving the war the Dunn County chapter of the Red Cross maintains 
at Menomonie an office from which is conducted an active and useful home 
service, including a system of help for service men in handling their problems, a 
county visiting nurse, etc. There is maintained in the city an active and efficient 
charity organization, which features a visiting nurse service among its activities. 
A school nurse is regularly employed in connection with the public schools, so 
that, with the health and poor departments of the city government the needs of 
the population in these respects are well provided for. 

Menomonie. by the last census, has a population of 5.104. but in appear- 
ance, enterprise and business activity it is ahead of most cities of that size. 

Its position as county seat of Dunn County makes it the official as well as 
geographical and commercial center of the county. A circumstance which illus- 
trates the importance of the city in relation to the surrounding country is the 
fact that ten rural free delivery routes emanate from the Menomonie postoffice. 
a number larger than any other county seat in Wisconsin can boast.

Masonic Temple and Home of the Commercial Club 

Representing the commercial, industrial, civic and social life of the com- 
munity is the Menomonie Commercial club, an active body of about 250 citi- 
zens whose endeavor is to make Menomonie a better city in the four lines 
indicated. The club is housed in the handsome Masonic Temple and its quar- 
ters are a convenient gathering place for many movements seeking the betterment 
of local conditions. The club is ever alert to welcome the newcomer and a func- 
tion on which it prides itself is that of seeing that Menomonie is known as 
"the city of the square deal." 

As Menomonie's fame, however, rests most largely upon its wonderful 
educational facilities, a review of its school advantages will be of particular 

Two Hundred Five 


Emerson said. "Every great institution is the lengthening shadow of a 
great man." The truth of Emerson's statement is well illustrated here in 
Menomonie. For it was from Senator Stout's position on the Board of Educa- 
tion of the Menomonie Public Schools that the shadow took shape and grew 
into the present Stout Institute. It was to the Public Schools that Senator Stout 
first turned his attention and it was in them that many of his progressive ideas 
were worked out. There is still reflected in the Public Schools much of the early 
progress which was developed when ideas new in educational thought were 
being put into practice here. 

The schools are organized along the lines suggested by the best modern 
practice into a senior high school, a junior high school, the intermediate and 
elementary grades and kindergarten. The senior high school comprises the 
10th. 11th and 12th grades and has about 260 students. The junior high 
school comprises the 7th. 8th and 9th grades and has about 250 students. 

The courses of study in the senior and junior high school are organized 
around the five major fields of educational interest, namely: English. Foreign 
Languages. Science. History and Mathematics. In addition to these, vocational 
work, in manual training, home economics and commerce is also taught. Oppor- 
tunity for work in music and the fine arts is also offered. The junior high 
school program is arranged to give the pupil a large number of comparatively 
brief contacts with the field of education. In other words the junior high school 
proposes to give the students a sample of each subject that the senior high school 
has to offer. With this experience the student can enter the senior high school, 
knowing in a way his likes and dislikes, his special abilities, and with reasonable 
freedom of election select those lines of work which suit his interests best. 
Especial mention should be made of the exceptional opportunity for work along 
lines of manual training and home economics which is open to the high school 
students. All the facilities of Stout are available for this work, giving it a 
range and equipment far beyond that found in the average public school. 

As proof of the quality of the high school work we point to the fact that 
the high school is on the accredited list of the North Central Association of Col- 
leges. This rating allows its graduates to enter without examination any col- 
lege or university in the 1 8 states comprising the Association. 

The first six grades are housed in four buildings distributed over the city 
so that no child is far from a grade school. The usual grade program is carried 
out by the regular grade teachers, who. in each of the subjects of music, art and 
physical training, are assisted by a specially trained supervisor. The health of 
the children is carefully guarded by the schools. A graduate nurse is a regular 
member of the teaching force. She visits each room practically every day. Con- 
tagious diseases are detected promptly and epidemics prevented. Defects of eyes, 
ears, teeth, and throat are discovered and recommendation for correction made 
to the parent. Undernourished children are detected and with the approval of 
parents are given one feeding of milk each day at school. In Menomonie parents 
can send their children to school with confidence that their health will not be 
jeopardized: rather that under the careful supervision the child has a chance to 
grow not only mentally but physically. 

On the whole Menomonie Public Schools are a decided credit to the city. 
They could be better schools: in fact a virile public sentiment will make them 
better schools each year. The spirit of Senator Stout still lives in the hearts of 

Two Hundred Six 

the Menomonie citizens. And always their public schools will spell to their 
boys and girls the one big American word. Opportunity. 


In connection with the general churchwork. the St. Paul's Lutheran con- 
gregation, consisting of 300 families, has considered its highest duty to impart 
a liberal education in a Christian spirit to the younger generation. For this 
purpose it has conducted for many years, a well organized parochial school of 
eight grades. It is the aim of the teachers to make the pupils entrusted to their 
care healthy-minded by developing originality and by teaching activity. To 
this end the mechanical idea is discarded to a certain extent, and the learner is 
given a clear understanding of the principles from which reason and judgment 
make the application and constitute the rule. 

The present school building was erected in 1904. and it is a fine and very 
complete edifice. The teachers are normal graduates and have had many years' 


As early as 1890 the members of St. Joseph's parish. Menomonie. had 
felt the necessity of providing for a parochial school which was to give adequate 
religious training as well as secular instruction to their children. The rather 
modest frame building on Ninth street, first used for school purposes, soon 
proved insufficient and a good brick school was put up in 1901. This in turn 
was found no longer to answer the needs of the growing parish and the year 
1912 saw the erection of the new St. Joseph's School, facing Tenth Avenue. 
The parish school as it stands today is architecturally speaking, without doubt, 
one of the finest school buildings of the city. It is a solid brick structure, two 
stories high, and modern in every way. The four class rooms are fully equipped 
throughout. In addition to these, the building contains a beautiful chapel, a 
society room with kitchen attached, and a roomy basement with all modern 
facilities. Special attention has been paid to the fine heating and ventilating 
systems enjoyed by the school. 

The annual attendance varies between 110 and 125 pupils. For almost 
thirty years the members of the well known Teaching Community of the 
Franciscan Sisters of La Crosse have had charge of the school. 

While the system of education followed at St. Joseph's School aims at 
the symmetrical development of the religious and the moral sense together with 
the mental faculties of its pupils, every effort is being made to secure for them 
all-around, complete, well-balanced, up-to-date, elementary education. By 
harmonious and sympathetic co-operation, wherever possible, with the city 
schools. St. Joseph's School has been fortunate enough to make arrangements 
very beneficial to its pupils. A special feature of this plan consists in this that 
the children of the seventh and eighth grades spend one entire afternoon each 
week under the supervision of Stout practice teachers. The practical results 
achieved by the children in both manual training and domestic science have been 
particularly gratifying under this system of co-operation with Stout Institute. 

The present teaching force of St. Joseph's School consists of four teachers: 
namely. Sisters Julitta. Gerald. Maura, and Mericia: the pastor. Rev. A. J. Dor- 
renbach. of St. Joseph's church, acting as principal.

Dunn County Agricultural School and Dunn County Normal School 


This school is one of the thirty-one training schools of the state maintained 
for the training of teachers for teaching positions in country schools. It fits 
young people, largely from the rural sections, for those positions graded and 
ungraded up to the principalship of state graded schools of the first class. 
Graduates of these schools are accepted after reasonable experience in all public 
schools where state certificates are not required. 

Th Menomonie school was one of the first to be opened in September. 
1899. being only a week younger than the oldest school of this type. Since 
its establishment it has graduated 697 teachers. The number of teachers in the 
country from these graduates usually run one hundred or more each year. 

It is equipped with a strong faculty of devoted teachers who are specialists 
in the several lines of work laid out for them. In many cases special training 
and preparation having preceded appointment on the faculty. It is well 
equipped with apparatus including a cameragraph for moving pictures and a 
stereopticon for lantern slides. 

It maintains three courses of study following two lines of work, one of 
which consists of academic mastery in the first two years of high school work 
and the review of the common branches to end of teaching them, while the 
other consists of professional reviews in connection with courses in pedagogy.

observation of teaching and actual teaching for practice under expert supervision 
and guidance. The course of three years admits boys and girls who have com- 
pleted the ninth year of the States course of study and who are at least fifteen 
years old: the course of two years admits boys and girls who have completed 
the tenth year: and a one-year professional course is offered for graduates of high 
schools. Upon completing any of these courses a certificate is issued to the 
graduate. It may be one of two grades, second, or first, depending upon the 
grade or quality of work done in the courses. These qualify for three, and five 
years respectively with renewal plans without examination by meeting condi- 
tions for professional improvement during the life of any certificate. The first 
grade is practically a life certificate on the plan of renewal for five-year intervals. 

The school is housed in a special building situated in the midst of the 
Stout group. The rooms are cozy and comfortable, inviting the home spirit on 
every hand. The policy of the school is one calculated to invite growth on 
initiative, self-direction, and thoroughness to the ends of teaching. It is articu- 
lated with state normal school courses through a system of very favorable 
credits so that students planning to continue work in state normals after teach- 
ing a while can lose no time taking a course in this school. 

The school charges no tuition to residents of Dunn County and all of the 
text books used are furnished to students at a nominal rental. 

For further particulars, write. Miss Elizabeth Allen. Principal. Menomo- 
nie. Wisconsin. 


This school is favorably located near the Stout Institute, the City High 
School, the County Training School, and the Memorial Library of the City of 
Menomonie. The aim of the school is to serve the country boys and girls. 
the farmers and those who arc interested in agriculture and domestic economy. 
There is no tuition fee charged for residents of Dunn County and therefore the 
school is free to them. Residents of other counties pay the same tuition as at 
regular four- year high schools. 

Several courses are offered. A four year course in agriculture for boys and 
a four year course in domestic economy for girls are given. Graduates from 
these courses may enter the Stout Institute, the University of Wisconsin. Nor- 
mal Schools, and colleges. Two year courses in agriculture and domestic 
economy, and short courses of four months each for two winters are given to 
boys and girls. In addition special courses in testing milk, feeds and feeding 
poultry, gardening, gas engines and automobiles may be taken by anyone who 
wishes to enter. High school graduates may take a one year course in agricul- 
ture or domestic economy. Eighty-one students are enrolled in the regular 
courses this year. Among these are twenty soldiers, fifteen of them being mar- 
ried men. 

Besides the regular school work a great deal of extension work is done by 
the faculty. One member of the teaching force holds two weeks* courses in 
agriculture in different parts of the county for farmers and their families during 
the winter months. In summer he organizes clubs, in calf. pig. poultry, bee. 
corn, potato, canning, and grain projects, and works on the farms with the 
young people. 

Two Hundred Nine 

Other lines of extension work are testing milk and cream, testing soils, 
organizing cow testing associations, pure bred stock and grain associations, soil 
improvement associations, tile drainage work, aiding in selling and buying pure 
bred stock and seeds, culling poultry flocks, testing seeds for germination and 
purity, testing soils and giving the amount of lime required. In addition to this 
work many circulars are sent to the farmers and more than two thousand letters 
of information are sent in answering letters for information on farm subjects. 


Menomonie also has besides her county, public, and parochial schools. The. 
Stout Institute. This institution represents an investment of over SI. 000. 000 
for buildings and equipment. It is a state institution devoted entirely to the 
preparation of teachers of Household and Industrial Arts. Its graduates have 
taught in nearly every state in the Union, in Porto Rico, and Canada. 

The school had its inception in September. 1890. when the late Senator 
J. H. Stout in an arrangement with the school board agreed to build a Manual 
Training building where the present Industrial Arts building now stands. In 
1897 the school buildings were destroyed by fire. New ones were immediately 

In 1908 the school was incorporated and became The Stout Institute. 
Aftei Mr. Stout's death the property was taken over by the state. There are 
now four buildings in the group: trie Industrial Arts Building. Trades Build- 
ing. Household Arts Building, and the Gymnasium and Natatorium. Besides 
these, there are two dormitories for girls, a practice Homemakers' cottage, and 
an infirmary. 

In addition to the above buildings the Stout Home with its beautiful 
grounds, some twenty acres in extent, was presented early in 1922 to the State 
for use by Stout Institute as a dormitory for the women students and teachers. 
This gift was made by Mrs. Angeline W. Stout. 

The Stout Institute offers 2-year and 4-year courses in both departments. 
In the 4-year course graduates receive the degree of B. S. in Industrial or House- 
hold Arts. Graduates of the 2-year course receive the diploma which is made 
the basis for the issuance of a life certificate to teach following two years of 
successful teaching. 

The enrollment of The Stout Institute has increased rapidly following the 
war period and beginning with the summer session of 1921 it has operated on 
a 45-week year. With the usual holiday vacation and a short recess between 
the regular and summer sessions this virtually keeps the school open the entire 
year. The school year now considered as being 45 weeks is made up of five 
9- week terms, one of which is the summer session. In the latter certain courses 
are operated on a semester basis to enable students to earn semester credit in 
certain courses when here only for the summer.
